“A zesty, vibrant red, with briary dark berry, licorice and bitter chocolate flavors that build richness toward lively tannins.”

92 Points, "Aromas of blackberry and pomegranate lead to a multilayered orchestra of raspberries, cherries and plums. It’s a jammy, extremely balanced Zinfandel with soft tannins, exuding spice and pepper on the finish. Delicious!"

1 Star/88 Points: "Bound to be viewed as being a bit over the top to many and just as likely to satisfy fans of unapologetically ripe, downright hedonistic Zinfandels, this full-blown edition shows a little more range and complexity than its style predicts, and, even if getting fairly hot, tough and tannic in the lattergoing, it is never less than well-fruited and avoids the raisiny, dried-grape desiccation that more often than not comes with wines of its ilk."
